RIP NBR

CNBC has decided to pull the plug on Nightly Business Report on 12/27.  This is truly sad.

Re: RIP NBR

Another valuable resource bites the dust.  It was the best of CNBC, without the endless teases and commercial breaks that keeps you from getting a concise report of salient developments.  Another example of Gresham's Law in content.  An ocean of baloney needing to be waded through to get anything of value.  

One would think at some point someone could create a business model to cater to those wanting less info, but more of value and without wasting one's time.  And hopefully not having to charge $20k a year for it.  Maybe I'm dreaming.  If only there were 100 hours in every day.

NBR started out as PBS-NBR in 1979. It became CNBC-NBR in 2013. It was distributed through WETA in DC, APT in Boston and CNBC overseas. Now CNBC is getting out of its production.

Re: RIP NBR

Hope it continues in another form. I enjoyed it with Paul Kangas and Suzy Gharib before CNBC took over.
